Thanks for the compliments, wijg!! And good to hear that the covers fit your B3350. You'll have to post some pics when you get a chance or when you've had a chance to test them out in some inclement weather. Fingers crossed that these will help with those regen issues in the cold.I recently ordered a set of grille covers from David and just received mine. They are made beautifully and fit perfectly. David has been a pleasure to work with and the purchase was risk free as he offers your money back if they don't work out.
I am looking forward to trying them out in the cold. That is the only time I have had DPF regen issues and I am hopeful that these grille covers will solve that. I'll post a follow-up after I have had time to use them in the cold weather.
Now why didn't I think of that??! But wait....I had, and it's in the write up. You'll have to do a little research, like you say, and read the whole thread. Apparently these B2650's are much more efficient than your larger Kubota toys and put all but the last drop of horsepower into the ground or pto output. Just the corrugated plastic insert in the screen slot wasn't enough to get the temp up in this colder North Dakota winter days. Thus, the rest of the story!Sheet of corrugated cardboard is cheaper, what I use. Polish winterfront.
Dave, I had looked at those and they'd work perfectly. If only they could have been rolled up along with the winter fronts. Unfortunately there's just no way to include them in the packaging for these sets. But this way everyone gets to choose their own colors. Thanks for posting that pic and info!!Suggest you consider one step up from cardboard and get the plastic stuff at Walmart or other stationary stores.
It stand up much better to the rain and wet snow.
Even available in different colors
I wonder if it would fit a B3000/B3030 ?Thanks for the compliments, wijg!! And good to hear that the covers fit your B3350.

Hi TimP,I wonder if it would fit a B3000/B3030 ?
Cute. Must be a Walmart shopper......Just wondering if this bedsheet qualifies as 'too hillbilly'?
For me, and others most likely, it is less about the warm up and more about the freeze over, snow getting inside the hood and the clogging/freezing of the air filter intake. I think it is the B3350 manual states to remove a portion of the intake in conditions where freezing could occur, maybe due to the regen process.Never had an issue with either of mine not warming up, no matter how cold ot is and it gets pretty cold up here in the north country.
I finally got the chance to get my covers on and they fit perfectly. Temps were in the mid 20's yesterday, with very little wind, and I put all 3 covers on before I started the tractor to warm it up. After plowing snow for about 30 minutes, I took the front cover off as the temp was slightly above normal operating range and it dropped and stayed rite where it should be. The covers worked excellent and when the temps really get cold, I'll probably have to put the front cover back on.
bird dogger does some really nice work and if you have to use your tractor in cold weather, his covers most definitely help keep the temps where they should be!
Here are a few pics, they aren't the best as I was in a hurry to get the snow moved before dark.
A big "Thank You", Fox400 and Highmarket! Your purchase and trust is much appreciated!!I finally put mine on and they fit great. Thanks Bird dogger.
Except the fan blows the wrong way.

Yep.... shoulder season sucked though. Freezing in the morning but sweating by noon.I sure remember the old days tarping the sides of dozers right up around the operator and turning the fan blades to pull the heat back through the other way. It worked really well and would keep you plenty warm!!
